city-namer

Greenkeeper badge

Application screenshot

Concept: browse OpenStreetMap and find city names to localize into a target-language.

Current status: loads place=* tags from OSM Overpass API, sorts them, and lets you cycle through them.

Needs: optional update on map-move, close-up views of locations, neater form, and mobile-friendly UI.

Pilot projects

Adding Nepali language names around Kathmandu

Kathmandu is mapped in remarkable detail, thanks to contributions from local and remote mappers, before and after the 2015 earthquake.

Some places have an English name only, or an English name first, where it is possible to support both and potentially show the local Nepali name first.
